I don’t know about you, but in the depths of winter, my motivation for the gym just seems to plummet. And although I sometimes feel like I’m being dramatic, there is actually a scientific reason to back it up. And I promise I’m not just trying to justify my love for 3D Energy.
As the days get shorter, the reduced sun exposure can dramatically affect your circadian rhythm, causing your body to produce more melatonin (a.k.a., the sleep hormone).
The end result is that you feel tired more often, and even when you do drag yourself to the gym you just yawn the whole way through each set.
If that sounds familiar, then you, like me, probably turn to caffeine for a little pick-me-up. Energy drinks can be your best friend when you’re looking for a little inspiration to train.
But at the same time, they can also be your worst enemy if you choose the cheap option that leaves you with nothing more than an irregular heart rate and rotting teeth.
My go-to has always been 3D Energy, and here’s why…
3D Energy: Let’s Talk Details
3D Energy is the brainchild of YouTube star and all-around fitness guru Christian Guzman. The entrepreneur – who also owns fitness apparel label Alphalete – has managed to make the product the most exclusive energy drink on the market over the past 2 years.
The tasty range is the company’s first and only release, and the can’s chrome design has become a hit with fitness fanatics all over the world.
It’s little surprise that Guzman has managed to make a success of the potent beverage. During his time as an internet star, personal trainer and bodybuilder he has managed to amass 1.1m followers on Instagram, 110,000 on Twitter and a further 999,000 subscribers on YouTube to boot.
It comes in 10 innovative yet delicious flavours: Galaxy Lime, Alphaland, Blue, Red, White, And Blue, White, Green, Orange, Red, Purple and last but by no means least, Gold.
How Much Caffeine Is In 3D Energy
Formerly known as UP Energy, 3D is a low-calorie, sugar-free drink that doesn’t skimp out on caffeine or flavour. It contains a healthy 200mg dose of caffeine that is sure to get you pumped for whatever challenges your day throws up.
To put that figure into context, Grenade’s Cherry Bomb energy drink contains almost a quarter less caffeine – 155mg. Now that’s not to say 3D Energy is better, but when I’m feeling super drained I know which one I’d rather reach for.
Other ingredient highlights include Taurine, a fat-metabolising amino acid, L-Carnitine Tartrate for additional energy, Glucuronolactone, which acts as a Detoxifier, and Inositol to control blood sugar.
Each 473ml serving contains just 15 calories, 6g of carbs, and absolutely no fat or sugar.
When Can I Use 3D Energy?
There are no real rules as to when you can use 3D Energy. For me, I like to reach for a can instead of taking a pre-workout. The reason behind that is 3D Energy provides a nice smooth, clean energy burst without the crash or itchy, irritated feeling on my skin.
However, you could easily replace your midday coffee with a can of 3D to power you through the second half of an arduous day packed with mundane meetings.
How Much Is 3D Energy?
Stockists and resellers have got away with selling these drinks for £2.80 to £5 per can. Visit the 3D energy drink website to shop. You can also check out other amazing Gymfluencer opportunities here.
